Conference: Harnessing the Winds of Change in a Shifting Nuclear World @ Canadian Museum for Human Rights
Sep 29 @ 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM

Dean of Law, Dr. Jonathan Black-Branch is organizing a conference to take place on September 29-30, 2019 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. With the title Harnessing the Winds of Change in a Shifting Nuclear World, the conference will examine problems regarding nuclear safety/security, non-proliferation and disarmament, which continue to raise important legal and policy debates within the global community. The potentially harmful effect of issues arising out of these important matters makes it imperative to consider further legal and diplomatic consequences requiring a paradigm shift in how we approach, interpret, and apply this area of law.

Anyone interested in such issues are welcome to attend. Those wishing to attend are invited to please register your attendance with the Faculty of Law here:
